  • Location Marrickville
  • Sector Multi-Unit Housing

This 5 storey mixed-use development, fronting Illawarra Road, Illawarra Lane and Marrickville Lane comprises 4 ground floor commercial tenancies, with 58 residential apartments above and 2 levels of basement parking. The development also provides communal open space on the rooftop.

The northern corner of the building is designed to the street frontage, keeping the street-level retail activity alive.

BKA carefully considered the treatment of the facade to reduce the visual impact of the 5 storey development. Planter boxes, blade walls, sun screening, awnings, pergolas, framing and balcony elements all serve to break down the scale of the building.
